Description

A special, carefully designed and well-planned VIP tour including Vatican museum tickets and the privilege of the earliest possible access to the Vatican Museums, before the general public enters! Let us lead you behind the doors of Catholicism, Vatican museum tickets in hand, with the comfort of a very small group tour (max 14 people) and offer you the rare chance to walk inside with basically nobody around, before the big crowds. A privileged experience, including Vatican museum tickets for a journey through mesmerizing history, breathtaking masterpieces and mysticism led by our expert in art and religion.

Being the burial place of St Peter Rome, the Vatican has always been considered a holy city – a second Jerusalem, but besides that the museum is a treasure chest of masterpieces: the astonishing gallery of statues, the fascinating gallery of maps, the gallery of tapestries and Raphael's rooms. During your visit to the Vatican Museums you will have the opportunity to learn about the great artists who helped embellish one of the most fascinating sovereign states in the world.

Then prepare yourselves for a Stendhal syndrome effect: Vatican museum tickets allow you to enter the Sistine chapel and lift your head up to the the very probably most famous and most admired ceiling in the world. Lose yourself in the “last judgment”, the seemingly never-ending fresco magnificently adorned by Michelangelo’s life-like, potent figures of Adam, God and Saints, and try to spot the artist’s self portrait on the torso of Saint Peter!

Here the conclaves of cardinals have come together periodically, throughout the centuries, to elect a new pope, and Pope John Paul II called it the “Holy Spirit’s place of action”.

Such a journey can end only with yet another special final visit: the inside of St. Peter’s basilica. Admire the incredible mosaics, Michelangelo’s Pietà, and Bernini’s Baldachin in all of their glory, close your eyes and take a deep breath: you are in the center of the most powerful religious power of history, surrounded by masterpiece.
A truly special experience, Vatican museum tickets in hand… enjoy a visit to cherish forever.
